    Hi to all,

    What preview tool do you use when previewing a report written in code?

    TIA,

    Carlos

    I don't have the code anymore but, you should run the prg to a text tile and
    then append memo that newly formed text file to a memo field. Now browse
    that memo.

    Re: Report Preview

    Why put it in a memo field? Just MODIFY FILE yourfile.txt NOMODIFY.

    Well I had to look and that is what I did. This was FP1 code. Man was that
    different back then. I looked at a project for grins and giggles. I saw
    SET FORMAT commands.

    But how can you hide the cursor when opening the text file with MODIFY FILE.


    TIA,

    Try set cursor off before using modify file and set cursor on after it.
